    I had the same but when for example ordering part directly from Peugeot it cost 700€, same part ordered by Bosch cost 240€.. Strange politics.

    was going by, got a price on some spark plugs , 33 euro each , wtf

    they are rebranded NGK, 12 euro each or oe from Germany for 14 euro

    How can a main dealer here justify over double the price

    Went to order a water pump from a local well known european car parts franchise ..."That'll be €770, please! " I bought the exact same part/part number from another well known european car parts seller in Germany for €240.

    Not just that I was talking to the inlaws about fire wood. Nearly 3 times the price here compared to France

    Never came across it, full license always lowered a premium in my experience

    Any excuse to price gouge
    My god. They make it harder, and harder, to start out in anything these days.

    I left my car in to get tyres yesterday.

    They were probably working on it for 20 minutes and spent at most 2 minutes driving it in and out.

    Why do lads in garages always have to mess around with the radio and the dash displays.
    It's not as if they are going down the road for a drive,can they not just leave the settings alone.

    Why does hardly anywhere do breakfast rolls mid morning anymore? No I don't want a low-grade chicken fillet roll or some sausage rolls drier than the sahara.
